Emergency Call

Yesterday around a quarter to nine, I got a call from Mom, “I’m so sick!” She described her symptoms, then said, “But I don’t think you need to come. I think I’ll be all right if I can just get some rest.”

Silly me, I took her at her word.

After several back and forth calls with her and her home nurse, I finally hit the road to her house around noon and got here at 2:30. Maybe one of the reasons I have Crohn’s disease–or at least the “something good” that has come out of it–is so I can know what to do in times like this. Mom’s symptoms were very similar to mine back in my worse days, so at least I knew how to help.

She’s a tad better now and resting easier, but it’ll be a couple of days before she’s back to normal.

Anyway, if you need me, call 1-800-Mom’s-place.

    Sorry to hear of your mom’s episode. Let’s hope and pray it’s just an “episode.:
    May God bless and keep both of you safe, in Jesus’ Name. Amen

    Cute… 1-800-moms place….I didn’t know you had Crohns (or at least I don’t remember reading that). So do I. It’s minimal. I’m glad your mom is doing okay.


  8. Linda Yezak says:

    Thanks, everyone. She’s doing a little better today.
